It has been known for months, but today is the last day for the early morning
VIA train out of Kitchener, headed to Toronto.

VIA will also send the last late train back from Toronto.

The cutbacks were announced several months ago and municipal leaders have been trying to bend the ear of VIA officials.

Rail advocacy group, Transport Action, is also involved in the fight and will be hosting a series of public meetings. The first is Thursday at 7pm inside Regional Council Chambers.

Greg Gormick with Transport Action will be the guest speaker. He will also be a guest on 570′s Gary Doyle Show today at 9am.

Starting tomorrow, VIA will have just one morning training leaving Kitchener. Train 84 departs at 9:10.

GO has trains leaving the Kitchener station at 5:52 and 7:10am.
